thinking of supercharging

I have a 94 4.6 - lets say I buy a supercharge off ebay from a Lightning or cobra, How hard is it going to be to make it fit my car..... or how expensive? I will need a new intake mamafold and head wont I?

How do you do that?

Neither of those units will fit your car. Save up your coins and buy a new unit from AED or Kenne Bell, it'll be cheaper in the long run. A lot cheaper.

Just passing through

A Bill,

Kenne-Bell does NOT offer a "KIT" for the MN12. Period.

AED is the only company to offer a true bolt-on supercharger KIT for the '94-'97 4.6L T-Bird and Cougar. It is also CARB exempt and fits under the stock hood.

Uglybird,

The task you wish to achieve can be done and has been done by others. The problem is, it's not going to be cost effective. To build the entire system (from intake to fuel system) it will end up costing you more than if you purchased a kit from AED.

Listen to A-Train ...that AED kit isnt cheap, but will give you the most bang for the buck. the other alternative is to adapt a centrifical blower like a powerdyne, ATI pro charger or Vortec ...for a 96-98 stang, but youll probably have to do adaptive plumbing, and wang the heck out of your inner hood to close it, not to mention new injectors , a chip, and fuel pump(not bad ideas anyhow)... good luck
